Oh I do love well engineered pieces ! 8)

Thanx to Fastec Engineering here in the UK I have a bespoke fork brace for the project - and it was the same price as a Tarrozi unit.... that didn't fit ! And they made and delivered it in a week. ;D

That's rad.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Thanx guys, after 2 false starts with a Tarrozi brace and another unamed model, I was lucky to find these guys when I was looking for parts for the car projects !

I have to say - the pix don't really do it justice. Superb craftsmanship. Another major lump ticked off. 8)

Just had a panic call from my pal [ bike in his garage ] to say there was play in the headstock - even after he had snugged the bearings down via the C spanner nut on the top yoke.

Turns out he'd trial assembled the steering dampener before pulling the bearings down - and that wasn't allowing the bearings to seat properly ! Panic over.

Have to have these little starts to keep the blood pressure up.

All fixed now. We had to modify the C spanner [ RAM shox ] as the "correct" one was 18 !!! REALLY ???

Bearings nicely snugged and all play eliminated. However, he did manage to mangle the bottom steering dampener anchor plate in the process ! Just elongated the mounting hole - so it's weld a washer time. Fortunately - can't be seen. Once that's done the front end is on - FOR GOOD.

Forgot to mention - one of my spare heads is going off for twin plugging. The first one I had done has got 14mm plugs in the centre position. I want to go with 10mm, like we used on our old Triumph heads. Anyone want a twin plug head ?

Fuel filler system has been finalised and pre-fitted - all except the bottom delivery into the fuel cell as the cell / belly pan are being finalised off the bike. Hope to get that fitted later today, then the fuel filling system is finished.

The mountings for the seat have also been designed and will be made over the weekend. The rear mount for the "tank" has also been mocked up - just need to work out how we are going to finish the Manx style tank strap as it's cosmetic only.

Next job once the seat and "tank" are secured is to find out where the footpegs need to be and mock up some mounts.
